SHADOWS OF SELF is a #5 New York Times bestseller and was chosen for io9‘s “Mind-Blowing Science Fiction And Fantasy Books To Watch For In 2015″ and “All The Most Essential Science Fiction and Fantasy Books in October” lists. Library Journal raved about the “fast, smart dialog and an abundance of exciting action.”
FIREFIGHT, the second book in the Reckoners series, is a #1 New York Times bestseller, which appeared on Kirkus‘s “Best Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror reads for January,” where they said, “This sequel to Steelheart keeps its foot on the gas pedal and is the prose equivalent of an action packed comic.”
